This quarter’s featured knitting/crocheting charities are Comfort for Critters and #HATNOTHATE anti-bullying campaign. We will be making Pet Blankets for Comfort for Critters (local donation spot is Humane Society of Central Illinois in Normal), and Blue hats for #HATNOTHATE anti-bullying campaign (these hats are distributed to schools across the country that participate in this anti-bullying program during the month of October).

Knitters and crocheters are welcome to create an item for the featured charities or to work on their own project. Feel free to bring snacks and beverages. Grab a friend, some yarn, and come on down to Normal Public Library to “knit for a bit!”
